Indians President Chris Antonetti Speaks to the Media on Numerous Topics; Five Takeaways

3. Could the Indians be a Big Buyer in the Trade Market Come Late July?

With the team looking like a team that for the third straight season will make the postseason, the obvious question that many people want to know is how aggressive this team might be around the trade deadline.

There’s a need for one or more arms in the bullpen, and you never know with injuries if the team might have the need to go out and get a player like they did last season after Michael Brantley went down and the team acquired Jay Bruce from the Mets.

“We will always be looking for ways to improve our team, the years we’ve been in contention that’s the way we’ve operated, and that’s how we’ve continued to operate this year,” Antonetti said.

“Really since the day after the draft the frequency and intensity of the trade talk have picked up, and we’re actively seeking ways to improve the team, whether that’s the bullpen or elsewhere.”

A lot of what this team will do in terms of trades counts on the health of Andrew Miller, and how this pen performs over the next six weeks.
